More attention should have been devoted to the decals, the placement is not correct and the jettisoning weapons for an airshow flying machine is not really true :-( sorry, but reuse and options in this version were to me absolutely strange, I knew the F8F of the Blue Angels only in Navy Blue :-(

This 1/48 Hobby Boss F8F Bearcat kit has good fit and the option to make folding wings safe nor incur some models of the F8F.
